Casting/Showreel Workshops

Ellie was so pleased with her showreel and said the workshop was one of the best, fun days of her life! - Ellie Geoghagan (12) - May 2017

It looks super. Thank you so much for all your hard work in creating this - proud to have it on Spotlight, thank you - Lucas Ward (14)- March 2017

Thank you for your advice and your interest in Rebecca(age 9) and for providing such a fun, and interesting workshop, I am sure she has come away more informed and I know she really enjoyed herself. We are both delighted to have met such lovely genuine personable people such as David  and Jane. - Samantha Barry - Watford

Just on the train back home and Tallulah and Kizzy(ages 14 & 16) are full of it , about the day.  Thank you so much for organising a fantastic day and David was lovely, very informative, please thank him on our behalf. - Lucy Fassett - Tunbridge Wells, Kent

I just wanted to say thank you, Jarrett (age 11) really enjoyed the workshop, met some lovely people and had fun.  He certainly learnt a lot from you and David in one day, not only about techniques but also the demands and expectations of the business, and the level of competition out there! - Lynn Mee, - Epsom, Surrey

Polly(age 11) had fun, made friends and learnt something and would not have missed it for the world - Chris Wildish -Diss, Norfolk

Emily (age 18) really enjoyed today, thank you.  She was buzzing with how she can improve by keeping herself in the room with interesting chat, and revealling her personality as a help in landing a part. David had so much knowledge of the right agents to go for and how Emily should market herself.  It was a real eye opener. Emily has been to other casting workshops but no-one has ever told her all this before.   Margaret James- London

Ollie (age 17)I would like to thank you for the support given to me yesterday. It was also a real eye-opener and I really learnt more from myself as a performer.  You helped me understand that I am a 'product' and should be marketing myself to help me get the best chance of success. I want to thank David and Jane for their advice as it has been strongly reflected on, thank you! And see you in the summer for the showreel workshop. Ollie Bridgewater - Birmingham

Louise (adult) one to one advice - David was fantastic. Thank you so much. - Louise  Green -Prestwood, Bucks

It was a totally enjoyable and interesting day with David giving us some really useful tips for how to approach auditions and casting agents.  He was very encouraging and also very funny and knowledgeable, having been in the business for years. So the day just whizzed by and Ellie (13) learnt such a lot and she would definitely go to another workshop organised by Lumino Films   -   Diney Bindman- London

Firstly let me thank you for the workshop you ran last Friday which my daughter Megan attended, she had a great day and said its the best workshop she had attended! Karen Sanderson - Bexley Heath

Thank you so much for a great day - Susan was very informative and  got us thinking how my daughter (age 14) could improve - Sarah King, London

I would like to thank you very much for  the  workshop yesterday at RADA. 
Ellie really enjoyed the experience and was pleased to meet you and Susan Head .  Ellie said she found the workshop interesting, enjoyable and informative - especially the chance to act in front of a rolling camera film and to be advised of some fundamental audition casting tips. Rachel Goldfinch - Buxted

Thankyou for Saturday, Lillie-Jay had a fab time at the showreel workshop, learnt a lot and thought Rory (cameraman) and Maria (assistant teacher), Jane Sanger (director) were lovely and friendly, making a great atmosphere.  We look forward to the finished showreel - Lisa Evans - Herts 

2018 - Thank you very much for the great showreel. It was so good meeting the other actors and I would love to just come to the workshop again if you do another one, because it was such fun and I learnt a lot -Marie (30's)

2018 - Would love for you to do a workshop session at my agency to help promote my clients.

2018 - Got my first paid role in a short film following your workshop . The Director said he loved my showreel- Dan (40's)  


 Joe Fisher - age 16 - Paglesham, Essex-

Thanks Jane for this.  Had a great time.  I am keen to get involved in any other projects/workshops you will be running and if you need any free labour, feel free to drop me a line.

Francesca Stone -19- Westerham, Kent -

Dear Jane, I really enjoyed the film, 'Tuesday and Wednesday' were great parts to play and  we seem to have made good friends which is an added bonus.

Charlotte Touboulic -19- Sutton, Surrey -Next, 3 days filming a horror film with some amazing people and having loads of laughs with the cast and crew.

Sunday October 27, 2019- S London Showreel Workshop

Individual Workshop date tba,

Another showreel combining adult and child themes.




Jane Sanger started life at  Laine Theatre Arts where her mother taught elocution and drama and she had her first professional role at 11. Later she went to university and then between her 5 children taught drama and art, writing scripts and directing plays.  She is an award winning Director of Film and also a successful freelance Casting Director and film Producer.

As an award winning Director and drama teacher of experience I will bring out your best performance so that your reel will be set to impress and encourage Casting Directors to bring you into the casting room.

SHOWREEL WORKSHOPS - SE LONDON(zone6) - £250 (minimum 4 in the group) - full day - 3 scenes. Its important to:

1. Make a 2 to 2 and half minute showreel that shows your skills off best to CD's

2. Play 3 different types, that define your playing abilities.

It is not good to say I can play anything- You must work on 2-3 types: ie bitch, ditsy girlfriend, hard, cold, intelligent officer - ladies. Nasty streak, kind, dopey father/husband, abrasive business man.

Together we decide what types you think you are- then 3 scripts are selected for you, written by me or other scriptwriters.

I film on a DSLR with Rhode mic attached or a Blackmagic Ursa Mini with a cinematographer and some lighting

If you want me to bring in special lighting, sound and makeup, hair -the price of the showreel is £400 per person, minimum 4 in the group.

If you want a stand alone showreel, that is only you in the workshop , where I get other actors in to play opposite you and pay them a small fee to do this

price £500 for me to make and edit.

If you would like a 2 page individual script written by me you can license one for £10 (one use)

If you would like use of another writers script you can license for £20 - (one use).

Use the contact page and I will send a script list with short synopsis for you to choose from.

This is if you want to film and make your own showreel or group together with friends to do so.

Want to get ahead? Never cast for the roles you want? Perform a scene that shows you can do it. We will rehearse and perfect 3 duologues or group scenes from dynamic comtemporary scripts.  From the max 12 attendees you will be linked with various other actors to bring out the best in your acting skills. A mixed age group is more realistic for the roles offered in many contemporary pieces .These three scenes will be fully edited by Ashley P Saunders and sent digitally to you as a stand alone showreel.You may send me other clips to add.  It will be your chance to try out roles you have not had the chance to perform before and perhaps take a leading role.  To make the most of this lines will need to be learnt prior to the workshop. Run by Jane Sanger.

Watch this video of the very successful Ellie Bindman, who came to my workshop in 2014 and now at age 19 in 2019, through her hard work and talent has been cast for Call the Midwife, Casualty, Grantchester to name a few.

Maybe you will be like her. Watch this showreel on:
